“Is everybody okay?” “Well... the fuckin' hippies aren't. That's for goddamn sure.”
I have watched this film in the cinema when it first came out in 2019, but didn’t think it was that great. After my second watch, 4 years and a good 550 other movies later, I liked it much better.
Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is essentially a love letter to cinema, a fairytale filled with jokes and references and a deep supporting cast. The film spends most of the time hanging out with its characters; there are plenty of scenes were we can enjoy DiCaprio giving a hell of a performance, or Pitt being effortlessly cool. The fairytale ends in a hilarious climax—an unexpected twist in appropriate Tarantino style—and they lived happily ever after.
Despite having the same premise as ‘Part I’, Part II’ is more thrilling and engaging thanks to some new characters and effective cross-cutting.
A character-driven sci-fi movie with thought-provoking themes, a powerful score and beautiful visuals, ‘Arrival’ is not just about language and communication, but also about humanity.
“You never heard the saying, never rob a bank across from a diner with the best donuts in three counties?” 2 Guns must just be enjoyed for its infectious chemistry and banter between Denzel and Mark, and a scene-stealing Bill Paxton.
Incredible debut from Natalie Portman. Gary Oldman chews the scenery hard, but the film can bear it.
More of a philosophical reflection on what it means to be human, than an actual film with a story. Technically flawless (but why such dark shots?), but story-wise it's quite bare-bones. I would've liked to explore more of the film's world with its androids and self-driving cars. The dance contest in the opening titles was hilarious.
Excellent dialogue, funny at times. Mark Rylance is tailored for this role (pun intended). What keeps this film from being good is that its twists are slightly too farfetched.
“If there's one thing I know, it's never to mess with mother nature, mother in-laws and mother-freaking Ukrainians.” Some nice scenes and locations, but too many silly jokes for my taste.
Excellent 80’s spy movie vibes, good pacing, flashy editing in some action sequences. Hugh Grant steals his scenes.
A delightful short film. Wes Anderson’s directional style suits Roald Dahl’s story remarkably well.
‘Snatch’ is filled with unforgettable characters and quotes.
Completely unexpected, ‘Riders of Justice’ is funny, emotional, and much more.
The oner has grown in length compared to the previous installment to an impressive 21 minutes.
Although the action is probably too abundant and the plot leaves much to be desired, one cannot help but admire the 11 minute pursuit scene, that looks as if it's been shot in a single take.
A classic heist thriller for a reason.
Let’s ignore the question how they got a spaceship the size of Manhattan up in the air. ‘Sunshine’ actually has an interesting premise and an edge-of-your-seat scene when they enter the other ship. But in the third act the plot steers towards utter nonsense. Such a pity.
